Parisi's Drive In is a family-owned "fast food" business which has been in Chicago's Garfield Ridge neighborhood for decades. Not much has changed at this great place; just look at the old photos they have hanging in there! Much has built up around it since they opened, but Parisi's has remained the same. They have the best Italian Beef sandwiches in the city, by far. Their milkshakes are delicious, and almost too thick to drink through a straw. Parisi's is also the home of the red sauce sandwich... the story goes that a little boy came in once, wondering what he could buy with the change in his pocket. Since there was nothing on the menu which cost just a few pennies, the owner created a little meal especially for the boy... a red sauce sandwich and a small drink. Everyone in the neighborhood knows and loves Parisi's red sauce sandwiches!
Parisi's is a carry-out only restaurant, staying true to its origins. That's not a problem, though... grab your order and head down the street to Hale Park for a picnic!
